Toronto Wind Action TWA is keeping an eye on the PC leadership race. They have printed a reply fromChristine Elliot to a questionnaire from TWA members:
Christine Elliot on Green Energy.
Ms Elliot states:
First, I will repeal the Green Energy Act. (I was wrong to suggest otherwise).
Second, I will impose an immediate moratorium (Me wrong again).
Third, I will examine each existing wind and solar contracts (Good!, not a commitment to cancel but a good start).
Fourth, I would amend laws and regulations to restore the power of local
communities (The lady knows her stuff and understands the issue).
Fifth, I would enshrine the independence and autonomy of the Independent
Electricity System Operator (IESO) (absolutely necessary).
Sixth, my energy and environmental policy would not include a carbon tax or a
cap and trade system. (no brainer)
I won’t try to use energy policy to solve every social, political, economic or
environmental policy in Ontario (perfect).
I don’t think any leadership candidate would quibble with any of these points.
I’m not picking a winner, but I misjudged Christine Elliot rather too hastily.
